Healthy Overnight Oats
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Healthy, Breakfast
  • 1 cup Rolled oats
  • ¼ cup of Buckwheat
  • ¼ cup of Millet
  • 2 Tbls dried coconut (unsweetened)
  • 2 Tbls Chia seeds
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • ¼ cup raw Almonds – chopped or sliced
  • ¼ cup Turkish apricots - chopped
  • 1 apple (sweet) grated
  • ¼ tsp himalayan sea salt
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • Seasonal berries
  • Almond milk (or whole milk if you can tolerate dairy)
  • *If buckwheat and millet are not available to you – add ½ cup of steel cut oats in place of them.
  1. Mix all dry ingredients together in a glass jar or bowl. Roughly chop almonds and apricots and add them to mix, along with grated apple. Cover with almond milk and stir in vanilla. Leave to soak in fridge overnight.
  2. The grains will swell overnight so you might need to add some more milk to loosen the porridge up. Serve yourself a portion and top with berries, and / or a spoonful of greek yogurt.
  3. Feel free to add or replace ingredients as you wish. For example – instead of using an apple to sweeten you could use a mashed up banana with walnuts instead of almonds.
  4. For a sweeter porridge – add chopped up dates or drizzle with a little honey.
  5. Left over porridge – add more milk to cover grains and place back in the fridge.
  6. Remember to try and use organic ingredients to maximize the nutrition in this recipe.
